Munich, being such an intercultural city, welcomes many babies to parents from other countries. Even though Munich is a world city, locals say “München ist ein Dorf” or Munich is a village, because of its small and familiar feel. Yet still….international parents scattered around the city sometimes struggle to connect and need to find their village within the village. After all, it takes a village to raise a child!
The Womb Room is the hub for this village. It gives expecting and new parents a space to build community as they learn and grow together.
The Womb Room is a place and space, both virtually and in real life, for expecting and new parents to find support and to connect with each other, all in the English language.
